Which Category Is Right For You?


Monthly Squad Membership Fees

Training fees are calculated annually and are divided into 12 standard monthly payments. Monthly instalments must be paid consistently to ensure that the club can continue to meet its ongoing financial commitments.

Seagulls Swimming Club monthly squad fees are dependent on the squad the swimmer is in, and taken by debit or credit card on the 1st of each month.   New members who join part way through a month will be billed first month's fee on a pro rata basis shortly after joining.  Please be advised that all late payments will incur a 10% surcharge.

As swimmers progress through the club, our coaches will periodically assess their performance and make squad moves.  As swimmers move squads, their opportunities to train increase and therefore so do their monthly fees.

As a not-for-profit club, the vast majority of our fees go towards to cost of pool hire.  Therefore, we review our fees when leisure centres increase their pricing which is usually on an annual basis.
